My friend Job in Chicago sent me a link to this knowing that I like all things Craftsman. It was an online auction and I wasn't registered, but he was. So he bid for me, and he won!

There is no normal Craftsman model # badge on this, so pretty hard to decipher who actually made it.

1 HP
220 volts 3 phase
1800 rpm 12" max wheel dia.

It's got a bolt on water pot shelf and the water pot. It had some lighted guards, but were broken in many pcs., but looked like they came with the machine.

One our way back from Wamfest 2017, Karl Sheilds, Dan Grade, and I tried to figure out who the manufacturer was from the 3 bad cell phone pics I had. I've looked thru all the 50's era catalogs with no luck there. Hopefully these pics will help figure out who the true manufacturer is.
